The Faculty

The Faculty is for people who want to keep learning. It’s a loose umbrella of events and courses for people who want to expand their horizons and learn new skills. Our new partnership with Blick Studios and Infinite Jest is only a few months old but most of our events are selling out. It seems that just because you’ve left […]

Faculty Film Club

The Faculty seemed like the perfect excuse to start a film club, something we’ve been thinking about since Seedhead was born. And after a pub conversation with local film maker Phil Harrison, here we are. The Faculty Film Club will show movies that stir the recesses of your brain, and have you chatting about the movie long after the credits […]

Real Sketchy

It’s been a year since I wrote a wee blog about how the Single Transferable Voting system works and now it’s time for another election. This time unfortunately we’re stuck with the ridiculous first past the post system, a system which leaves most people in the country feeling helpless because most seats in Northern Ireland are considered safe. I did […]

Right guys it’s Small Business Saturday so we’ve got our Small Business Santa Blog. As a small business we’re all about trying to support some small businesses and this year we’ve been making a deliberate effort to spend less money in big corporations and more in local business. Among the many joys that this has given us it has lead […]

Ten Thousand to One – Pointless 21st November 2014

This morning I got onto an argument on twitter with a young lady who was suggesting that in the current climate she didn’t believe in funding the arts. An 11-15% cut isn’t enough for her obviously, she wants to stop funding the arts altogether… cause y’know, the health service and that. To be fair I kind of lost the rag […]
